i am so heartbroken. Last Thursday I came home from work but did not go upstairs for a while because I stayed to talk with my mom, who later mentioned my Chinnu never came downstairs today. I said she’s probably upstairs. When I finally went upstairs, I saw her in the game room next to my brothers weight bench. She looked liked she was asleep but I called her name 2x as I walked closer to her. She didn’t move. Then I noticed the puddle of blood and it was still dripping from her mouth. She also had lost bowel control. My poor girl was gone. I don’t know what happened to her. Could it have been a heart attack or a stroke? She was mainly an indoor cat but sometimes went outside for short amounts of time. 

Hi.. About 4 hours ago my 7 year old sweet boy passed away. Im in complete shock as i was leaving school as it happened. When i came home my mum was balling crying and told me that my cat passed away he was never hit or abused. He was taken care of very well and had the best life a cat could ever have.. He was very very healthy and was a male. He apparently was ontop of my mothers bed, My mum then heard a thump and went upstairs to see him flopping around on the floor. There was no blood there was no past problems with him, Nothing. Could someone please tell me what happened to him, Did he pass away with pain? did he not even know what happened. Im just really hoping he passed away without any pain or problems.. We believe he might of had a brain aneurysm, But no one at the vet told us what they think it might of been.. He just fell off the bed, Flopped around for a few seconds, And took his last two breathes. His heart stopped, we took him to the vet and got him cremated. We didint take his ashes though because it was like 250$ and not taking the ashes was 50$.. I just wanna know did my cat die okay? Thanks..

Hi my name is ej so today 11/22/2018 my cat princess who is a outdoor/indoor was found outside my screen door not moving. I picked her  up and she started seizing i wrapped her in a blanket and held her till she died a hour later. This was so sudden the day before she was bouncing around and she loved to sit on my lap no matter where i was sitting. She was a amazing cat and this sucks. Please someone help me understand what could of happened. Thanks....

My Cat Poppy and I were up at the cottage just to get a few things done to close up for winter including an appointment that I had to put on my snow tires.
On the weekend.. Saturday night to be exact I heard a bit of a stir which was normal but looked over to the corner of the room and Poppy was on her side and very disoriented.. I picked her up and moved her to the bed where she "came too" and then she was seemingly fine until she heard my voice ... and she went and hid under the bed..  for the night.  She was not a happy kitty and everytime I would try to talk her out from under the bed she would growl at me in fact she even lunged at me at one point.. she didn't seem to know me.  It's a snow storm now so I am calling around cottage country to see if I could find a vet .. because the vet clinics are all closed.. anyway they could not help me but said just to keep an eye on her it might be that she got into something.. or perhaps she is constipated.. give her some metamucil.  
Turns out the next day.. now Sunday she was a little tired but back to her normal self again... purring and eating and following me all over the place.  Monday again.. after speaking to the clinic they said it sounds like she got into something so I decided to take her in for an exam on Tuesday or Wednesday...they said just bring her in.    Monday she was perfectly fine.. a little needy...  I put a litter box in my bedroom and worked on my laptop in bed so we could snuggle.. and remember thinking she hadn't used it she must be using the other one.  So many flashbacks of what we did and trying to recall everything to search for clues.   Monday just as usual we go to sleep together.. she did her regular song and dance....   when I woke up on Tuesday a litle later than normal I found her on the couch and she had passed away.  No vomit or urine, no blood.. she was in her usual sleeping position in her regular couch spot...  it blew me away.     I am not even that concerned with what took her life..  I am absolutely consumed with grief and guilt and wish that I could have seen signs..  I think Poppy tricked me into thinking she was ok for the last day because all I did was hug her and tell her how pretty she was and that I was scared that she was going to leave me... and i remember thinking how much I appreciated her and promised never to take her for granted again.   The sadness is crushing me and I don't know how to move past the guilt.  I know that the outcome might have been different if there was not a storm and I took her in right away.. if we didn't come to the cottage and I was closer to our regular vet.. if I had just seen the signs I was even obsessing over her littler  box to see if she had urinated enough... and I keep looking back for signs.  I think if I can push through the guilt I can begin to heal but it's consuming me.. I'm still up here and the lonliness is agonizing ...  my Poppy licked away many tears and  was always around me.. she gave me way more than I could have ever given her and I will always ge grateful for her.   I loved her so much and feel like I let her down.  Thank you for letting me share my story.    C

On Tuesday morning of this week, our cat, Flower, died suddenly.  It has been very traumatic for us.  He was nine had been to the vet six months prior and had no symptoms of anything.  He experienced the same morning he always did, with the same energy level.  He bounced around the bed for a while, knocked some stuff off my dresser, the usual.  With no warning, he suddenly cried out, collapsed in a seizure with a little bit of foam at his mouth and was dead in seconds! 

My fiancee could not abide an autopsy.  Can anyone help me?  I need to know what likely happened in order to put this behind me.  Any idea what might have happened to him?

my cat Rocky, of about 6 years, passed away tonight. several hours before, he was perfectly fine. I come home and he had vomited and pooped everywhere, and was lying in the kitchen on his side, drooling, eyes wide. he passed away shortly after. I don't know what caused it, and we won't be able to pay to see what happened. but he was a wild one, an adventurous cat, and loved picking fights. he was my baby boy.he swiped at me when he was hungry, and curled up with me in bed. I'm afraid someone put down rat poison, or he was bitten by a snake. if anyone has any thoughts, anything counts.

my 9 month old kitten was found deceased outside. Someone found her and took her to the vets. The vet assumed she had been run over but she didn’t have a mark on her. On the morning she died she was very late to get up and went back to her bed mid morning. This was unheard of. She also used to pant when she used to run and she had put on a lot of weight around her tummy. Could she have died of a heart issue? It was all very sudden, we don’t live on a busy road. 

I have been wracking my brain since Wednesday when my wife and I came from work and found our baby, Nova, on the floor. He was indoor cat only and always had tons of energy. He was a loving cat, all of our friends and family adored him. We have been a complete mess to say the least, he was the first baby we saved together 9.5 years ago. We haven't had any answers until I decided to look online to try and put my mind at rest. He he was fine when we left for work that day around 7. We got home around 4:30 and he was laying there sprawled out, similar to the other posts I've read. We called around trying to find somewhere that could do a necropsy, I needed to know what happened. We have another cat and two dogs and our first thought was the dogs did it. The dogs have never gone after either cat but one did have a couple of scratches on her face and there were a few tufts of fur around him. I didn't want to believe the dogs could do this, they all got along quite well. We examined his body and there were no puncture marks or blood, he did have a few marks on his rear area. He also looked to have been licked all over.  No one could do a necropsy because of how long he had been gone (4-6 hours before we got home). We were able to get an X-ray that showed no broken bones or air pockets in his lungs. They said the marks on his rear didn't break skin and were either already there (like a scar) or had been after he passed. Nothing made sense. I have been neglecting my dogs the last few days, can't even look at them, thinking they were the cause. I also looked online and found some dogs will paw, nip at, and lick animals to wake them. I have read read so many posts about these sudden deaths, each one so heartbreaking to hear. I wouldn't wish this pain on anyone and my hearts breaks for all of you who shared your stories. I do thank you for sharing because now I have a little comfort knowing cardiomyopathy or other heart condition may have been the cause and that my dogs may have been trying to check on him or revive him. Now knowing is so hard. I wish there was something I could do. I wish I could have been there to hold him.

Ive lived in a community that has lots of feral cats for 15 years now. Since the last 3 weeks 2 youngsters maybe a year old have died, both in almost the same place of my backyard. I’m 15 years this has never happened. Not a scratch on them. I suspect poison, possibly fly bait. Does anyone know anything or suggest something for me to do. These feral cats were very healthy, they have not even weathered our harsh winter yet.
